We all remember those paper chains that helped us count down the days until Christmas morning, right? With this Christmas Countdown Paper Chain Printable Activity, you can make it meaningful too! 


Kids create a paper chain countdown for Christmas/Advent that encourages them to do something simple and meaningful each day! Each link has a special activity for the child to complete on their own or with their family.


Some of the activities on the link include:

  • Offer to help your parents set the table or do the dishes.
  • Play the Humming Game (hum a Christmas song and see who can guess it).
  • Read about the wise men in Matthew 2:1-12.
  • Find a book about Christmas and read it together as a family.
  • Write a thank you note to your teacher.
  • And more!

Print off a copy for each child on red and green paper. Complete the activity at church or send it home as a family activity!


This download includes: 

  • Leader's guide with instructions and ideas for use (.docx)
  • Template for Paper Chain Links (.docx/PDF)

This product is a digital download, which means you will receive a link to download the files after completing the check-out process. Please note: It is too large of a file to view on a mobile device.
